Paint a mural for free & advocate for better mental wellbeing 14-17yr olds
Calling young people aged 14-17! Lets use art to promote positive mental health in our community.
About this Event

You don’t need to be an artist! If you’re aged 14 to 17 years join artist Shavaurn Hanson and mental health professional Orion Read in painting a mural at the Melville City Hockey Club (LOT 2821 Williamson Road, Kardinya WA 6163).

So what’s happening?

Local Young people have worked with Shavaurn and Orion to design a mural design that de-stigmatises mental health conversations, educates on signs, symptoms, and healthy habits, and encourages the community to seek help.

You will be coming along to paint this mural. The painting is scheduled for 9.00am to 11.00am on Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 December 2022. See you then!

Why should I come?

  • Make new friends
  • Learn about mental health and staying mentally healthy
  • Boost your CV and leave an artistic mark in your community.
  • Paint art that removes stigma, demonstrates the importance of seeking help, and promotes positive mental health and wellbeing.
  • Enjoy free snacks!

Why is this project important to you?

A recent survey of young people aged 12-25 in the City of Melville found:

  • 19% of survey respondents live with mental health difficulty
  • 49% of survey respondents identify mental health as a priority for their peers.

So whether you know it or not, many of your friends are likely experiencing mental health difficulties and want to make being mentally healthy a priority.

What should I bring?

  • Bring your passion for making your community a better place.
  • Hat, Sunscreen, water bottle.
